Egan, who is heterosexual, claimed in the suit that from age 15 through 17, Singer, as one of a ring of eight to 10 abusers, including other Hollywood power-players not named in this lawsuit—“whose names you will recognize,” Egan told The Daily Beast—sexually abused him.
“Immediately the brainwashing began,” Egan told The Daily Beast. Echoing the allegations in his complaint, Egan claimed that “they would sit me in a room and tell you that you were gay, which I wasn’t, that I had to keep the group happy. They constantly pushed you. The threats began immediately. They said that if we didn’t keep them happy, harm would come to ourselves and our families. There were threats of weapons. We were told we would be eliminated, our career chances would be destroyed. It was a living hell.”
After moving to Southern California, Egan’s family put him in a private school, where he made a friend who introduced him to his older brother, Chad Shackley, in mid-1998. Shackley lived in a mansion in Encino called the M&C Estate. He lived there with his lover, Marc Collins-Rector, who ran an “online entertainment business” called the Digital Entertainment Network, or DEN.
In fact, after DEN went belly-up (with the loss of 300 jobs following a botched $75 million IPO), Collins-Rector fled the U.S. and briefly spent time in a Spanish prison before being convicted in federal court of sex crimes. He pleaded guilty and paid a fine.
His name has resurfaced in the lawsuit filed against X-Men director Bryan Singer. The plaintiff, Michael Egan, claims he was 17 years old back in 1998 when he was introduced to Singer at Collins-Rector's mansion in California, according to The Wrap, where you can download a copy of the lawsuit.
